My name is Gabe Giannelli and I have played close to 2000 gigs in the last decade. After attending Berklee College of Music, I did two years on cruise ships and am currently in a Navy band. I play all styles of music and I love the rush of having to learn something new on short notice. This is why I have created an "all in-one get ready for your next gig" site. I hope you dig it!
Over the years I have had to search all over the web for scores, audio, and videos to get ready for gigs. I often found the charts lacking detail, hard to read, or both. Here, I will provide everything you need for your next gig IN ONE PLACE! The charts are very easy to read, so get your band's set list, grab a cold one, and look around!

I can't say enough good things about your site.
It is probably the most unique site on the web with respect to transcriptions.
I have not found another site with such comprehensive charts and great presentation.
Thanks for your efforts. -Charlie

Just spent a rare and relaxing evening with the charts you so generously offer.
I also enjoyed your insights gained from your many experiences.
Thank you -
I just want to take a moment out to thank you for creating such a fantastic site. Being a 23 year old about to graduate Musicians Institute and head out into the "Real World" it is awesome for me to hear your stories, your advice and outlook on the professional drumming industry!
Thanks again for this site and I will be checking back often.
I just stumbled upon this sight and I gotta give you some props man! What an awesome idea and a totally invaluable service you have here. Nice work! Especially cool is the history of different bands with regards to the drummers (James Brown!!!!). Keep up the good work!
Wow, you're the best. I'm glad I found your site and look forward to working with other charts. I haven't heard a drummer yet play with the simplicity of the original [Ain't Too Proud To Beg] and, as a result, get the same original Funk Brothers groove.
Thanks a lot.
I love the Brick House chart! I'm still working on the tune, if you can believe it -- it's challenging to play a quarter note on the first hi-hat beat every other measure, and then that bass drum beat on the 16th note anticipating the "4" -- wow. Those guys are geniuses, and you nailed it. --Naomi
